Information sessions for parents & guardians applying for their child's admission to Diamond School.
Parent Information Sessions are intended for parents and guardians submitting new student applications for admission to our school in the upcoming school year. These group sessions are an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the school – our philosophy, education programs and approach to creating a safe and nurturing learning environment. Sessions also address what to expect next in the application process.
Each session will include a virtual school tour.
Four sessions are set up to cover four grade ranges - Kindergarten, Grade 1-3, Grade 4-7 and Grade 8-12. This helps us to tailor what we discuss in each session to the ages and grade levels most relevant to the parents attending. Please select the session with the grade range that covers the grade for which you are applying for admission. If you are applying for more than one child and they will be in different grade ranges, consider signing up for each applicable session.
Zoom sessions have been scheduled for the following:
Kindergarten Thursday February 11th 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Grades 1-3 Wednesday February 10th 11:00am to 11:45am
Grades 4-7 Tuesday February 16th 3:30pm to 4:15pm
Grades 8–12 Tuesday February 16th 4:30pm to 5:00pm
